Security in Indian Airports - Travel Tips to India


Heightened security measures at airports have increased the time needed at the airport and the variety of security measures you may encounter. The following tips will help smooth the process:

  • Allow plenty of extra time by being at the airport at least two hours before departure to catch your flight especially if traveling with children or senior citizens.
  • You will be required to produce your travel documents at different points through your journey so remember to keep them easily accessible at all times.
  • Avoid wearing clothing, jewelry, or other accessories that contain metal when traveling. Be aware that any metal detected at the security checkpoint must be identified. If you set off the alarm, you will be required to undergo a secondary screening, including a pat-down inspection.
  • Take your laptop computer out of its carry case and place it in the bin separate from the carrying case.
  • Outer coats and jackets must go through the X-ray machine for inspection. Pack these in your carry-on baggage when possible.
  • Wear shoes that can be taken off and put back on relatively easily since you will have to remove them every time you go through security inspection.
